After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
Card Layout and Features
In terms of an available HDMI connection the DVI connector is basically the same thing but will require an adaptor if you system doesn't support it. You won't get audio over HDMI using an adaptor but to be honest we find optical audio be better and more versatile.
The D-SUB connector is actually connected via a ribbon cable; we suspect this is so you can give the card a lower vertical profile. However this is likely from an attempt to simply board design and lower costs.
